Long Description:
The Airline Belle, a four coach commuter train, began making two round trips from Norcross to Atlanta every day, beginning in 1878. Merchants would bring their wares to the resort hotel for tourists to peruse.

The Depot was built in 1909 by John Pettyjohn & Company for The Southern Railway for $4750.00.

The old Southern Railway depot in Norcross was donated to the city by Norfolk Southern in 1983. It is now a popular restaurant and has hundreds of railroad memorabilia on display inside.
